COLOMBO – Unions in Sri Lanka, including representatives from the textile and apparel sector, have signed an MoU to advance worker rights to include freedom of association and collective bargaining. The Joint Apparel Association Forum (JAAF) is among five unions signing the agreement, which outlines the establishment of a bipartite dispute resolution mechanism by the unions and JAAF.
Under the MoU, any grievance raised by the unions will be forwarded to JAAF’s executive committee and the trade union collective for review. JAAF and the respective union will then collaborate to resolve the issue within a month, or mutually extend the timeline and seek an independent external investigation to help reach a resolution.
